Umich CAEN Wireless on Snow Leopard

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

I was just told how to get on to the University of Michigan CAEN Wireless with the VPN client built into Mac OSX Snow Leopard, so I thought I would share.

If there’s anyone actually subscribed to my blog that doesn’t care about this… sorry, I just use it as a dumping ground for information.

Since some of this info is protected, I’ll just refer you to the protected URL that has the info:
